Instant dhokli mix- 1

Imagine the joy of using one single mix to make Instant Gujarati Dal dhokli   (whole wheat Indian pasta simmered in sweet and sour lentil sauce), Theplas (Spiced rotis with or without veggies or greens), Cucumber carrot onion semolina pancakes and many more.

Ingredients for this Instant dhokli mix-

For every 2 cups (400ml or about 200 g) of Whole wheat flour
Chilli pd- 1 tsp
Turmeric pd (haldi)-1 tsp
Coriander pd - 1 tsp
Salt- 1 & 1/2 tsp
Thymol seeds (ajwain, omum)- 3/4 tsp
Oil- 4 tbsp

You need 1/2 cup of this mix to make Dal dhokli for 1 or 2 person.
When you want to make the instant mix in large quantity(1 kg) you can just multiply the ingredients by 5.

Take whole wheat flour in a bowl.
Add in all the dry ingredients. Mix well.
Make a well in the center and pour oil in it.

Slowly mix this oil with the flour. Rub with your fingers till all the flour is coated with oil and looks
like bread crumbs. 
You can also mix this in a food processor with 's' shaped blade.
Store this in airtight container in cool and dry place away from sunlight.
Use a dry spoon each time while you are taking out the flour.

Meals you can cook using this-

1. Instant Dal dhokli (one dish meal) and this also requires Instant dal mix-3.


3. Instant Methi thepla- Gujarati spiced fenugreek roti 
with veggies or plain, with oil or without, on griddle or grill

    1. Thank you for appreciating my efforts. Tell me if you want any particular food recipe adapted for dorm cooking. I would try to give it you. I am curious to know what my blog fans want, what ingredients are available for them to cook (eg. pre-cut vegetables, canned boiled pulses and beans like chana (garbanzo beans) :)

    2. Well for me it's : the simpler the better! Have you shared the recipe of simple with dal, rice and some peas etc?? ..that way I won't have to cook both of them separately ! I have a electric multicooker..

    3. There are many one pot meals, check lunch / dinner section . Try out oat wheat khichdi, bisibelebhath. Also check meal plans given with stuffed okra recipe. You can replace oat and wheat by rice.
